CNN Heroes Airs Tonight

24079_012_1072_sv“CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” airs tonight at 8pmET. The event, now in its eighth year, happened two weeks ago, and was recorded for broadcast tonight. During the first few years, CNN Heroes aired live, and, while a noble cause, was not a ratings hit. As we wrote in Dec., 2007 about the first CNN Heroes, which aired on a Thursday night:

The almost three-hour broadcast rated poorly in both the A25-54 demo and total viewers. The event caused CNN to slide significantly into third place behind MSNBC during primetime in both categories. The show itself placed fourth in the A25-54 demo at 9pmET behind a Deal or No Deal repeat on CNBC.

But by 2011, “CNN Heroes” had finished first in the demo in its original Sunday night airing. This year’s event includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Jonas, Kelly Ripa, Taye Diggs, Quvenzhan√© Wallis, and John Leguizamo, celebrating 10 Heroes and honoring the “CNN Hero of the Year.”

Jalen Rose Sentenced to 20 Days in Jail for Drunk Driving

ESPN basketball commentator Jalen Rose has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for driving while intoxicated, or approximately 3.3 days per martini (six) that Rose admitted to drinking before rolling his Cadillac Escalade in Michigan in March.

Rose will report to the Oakland County Jail on Tuesday to be housed with 1,200 other inmates.

His defense attorney had pleaded with the judge not to send Rose to jail, but to no avail.

“Jalen Rose’s whole life has been about community service,” James Burdick said. “He has accepted his responsibility from the very first day. The most difficult thing Jalen has had to do is sit down with his young children and explain what daddy has done.”

Rose, in a brief statement, said he has been “humbled and humiliated by this process.”
